Swimming Lessons

Lessons are on hold until after the pandemic.

Trying to improve your freestyle?  Finally want to tackle the butterfly?  Need to know more about the latest breast stroke techniques?


If you want to improve your swimming, the Nads are hosting swim lessons with Coach Barry! Now entering his 5th year overseeing the Nads swimming lessons program, Coach Barry offers semi-private lessons to groups of no more than 5 people.  All are welcome!


Emphasis is on making swimming enjoyable through:


  • Learning to swim efficiently for fun, lap swimming & triathlons

  • Streamlining body position to swim with less effort, increase speed & distance

  • Simple stretching and warm-up techniques

  • Proper stroke, body roll, and kick technique to conserve power and increase endurance

  • Swimming drills to help change bad habits into effective swimming

  • Interval training designed to increase endurance

  • Starts & turns to take the drudgery out of lap swimming

  • Evaluations to show your progress


Lessons take place on Saturdays and are divided into two groups:


10AM           Beginning and Intermediate Freestyle

11AM           Intermediate and Advanced IM (Back, Breast and Butterfly)


Lessons cost $70 for four one-hour sessions over a six week period.  Please bring your payment to the lessons and pay Coach Barrry directly.


For the first month, those who take swim lessons are eligible to participate in our weekly practices at no additional charge!  For the second month, you get a DISCOUNT CODE for a free 1-Month Swim Package. Thereafter, if you want to join us for our coached Tuesday and Thursday evening swim sessions, you'll need to choose and pay for one of our 4-Session, 1-Month, 6-Month or 12-Month swim packages.


Lessons are held at The Charles Hadley Pool, a public Olympic Swimming Pool we rent for this purpose. The Hadley pool is heated in Winter and cooled in Summer.  There is plenty of parking at the facility, which is located at:


1350 Northwest 50th Street, Miami, FL 33142

(parking lot entrance on NW 12th Ave between NW 46th St and NW 50th St)
